the wealthiest men in america, merchants, among them, john hancock, yes, thee bold john hancock on the declaration of independence whose name is synonymous with signature. long before that, he was arguably the wealthiest merchant banker in america living on beacon hill with a commanding view of the massachusetts landscape and sea scape. far from espousing individual liberty, hancock and his fellow merchants in new england, governed their businesses and communities with economic ruthlessness that often left their competitors homeless and penniless. like today's tea party movement, the colonial tea party had almost nothing to do with tea. tea was nothing more than a social beverage for wealthy women. men seldom draping it, and it ranked below ail and rum among beverages americans consumed most. the tea party movement that sparked the american revolution actually began 20 years earlier in the 1750s and 1760s when new england business leaders like today's tea party supported a costly government war, but refused to pay higher taxes to cover the cost of that war. the war had started i

complicated tax code in america. that's where you are going to provide the certainty than people need, and that the economy needs. it is not just raising the rates. that is really a straw man. it doesn't solve the problem. we could raise those top two rates to 100% and it would fund the government for 91 days. that does not solve the problem. it is a false promise that suggests by raising the rates will solve the problem. that is a band aid. what we need is the big fix. we need to have the big problems facing america. this is our moment. i believe the american people want to see that. they want to see the republicans and democrats coming together. they want that leadership from the president. >> there were two polls out this week that show the american people want you, your caucus, to start talking to the president more seriously about raising taxes on the upper income earners. you saw the washington post/abc news poll saying they were upset about the way the president was doing things and also people unhappy about the way the discussions are going. you have a majority of the country

, as we go through this first-ever challenge america summit. so i've got just a few things that, you know, i wanted to do with everyone, before we get into the program. first of all, i just want to take a minute and have everyone just look around this room. in this room, we have amazing people that are corporate, nonprofit, and government, all focused on challenge driven innovation in some way or another. this is a really powerful,interf people that are gathered here to look at how competitions can drive innovation. that's what tonight is all about, is, you know, the next step in creating a real wave of innovation. my job tonight is just to give you a little bit of background on what we are, what we're tiqp)q)s that we have.roup of so just to get going with that, i want to tell you a little bit about this thing called the night rover/< challenge. this is a collaboration between the clean tech open, unoodle, and nasa. it's a program from nasa's office of centennial challenges. and it's challengin the best innovators in america to create radical new energy storage technology. you know, way
to the people who live in the united states of america. why? because we share the same values, the same principles, the same heritage and the same enemies. because we are in the middle east today, dean attacked we ask ourselves why these people against the jewish nation in the middle east. not because of the lens we so-called occupied. it is the value we are working upon them in israel and the values of our democracy following very carefully their election here in the united states and beginning to be interesting. but we do father and we do to the american people and the american values. sometimes too much. for example today of independence in israel, a big celebration you'll find people in the israeli flag and the american flag. i don't like it. i put on my car only the israeli flag. why do people do with? to democracy and values of the american people. one of my main point in my book is israel is not america. even though we love america, we are not america and we cannot make mistakes because if you make a mistake, you pay a price, but you are able to correct it. if israel makes the mi
do go after guns and try to, quote, disarm america, did you know on black friday, the day after thanksgiving, 155,000 requests came to the fbi for clearances to buy guns. >> eleanor. >> right, and that is the paranoia of people, that it is falled by a lot of dark impulses, which we're not going to go into here but we live in a culture that is awash in guns where people have easy access to guns to wreak mayhem. when i was a kid we used to duck under the desk because we were afraid of the nuclear bomb coming. kids today do drills in case a lone gunman comes into the classroom so they know what to do. i don't think we want to live in a society like that. and this horrific event may be the tipping point that injects some courage into our politicians. this president, like the president before him, george w. bush, say they will sign an assault weapons ban if it comes to their desk. but neither has done anything to make that happen. so i think if the president is looking for a second term, crusade, if you will, he should take this on, and maybe the parents of america will be riled up e
against the war. i see the u.s.-mexico war as a moment of america's first antiwar movement coming into being. so there's antiwar sentiment during the revolution and certainly during the war of 1812. that sentiment was limited. but gc happened in 1847 is a consensus across the board. people across the country can soldiers in the field, officers, politicians, all decided that a war was the successful invasion of their country was wrong in protesting the war. so this is an interesting moment in american history and it takes place and they were people don't know much about. the u.s.-mexico were, people don't write about it a lot. it doesn't have a good place in the historical imagination of americans. it's often confused the texas revolution that have been eight years before or ignored altogether. when historians talk about the u.s.-mexico war, they tend to think about the war in relationship to the civil war. they narrowed the war i started the first stop on the road to secession, arguing the land that came from mexico at the close of the war was what really caused sectionalism to he
